It takes a little time to unload all the treasures also, mostly because I can't remember where I stashed all of them. You wouldn't think there were that many hiding places in a motorhome!! I unpacked and washed these three beauties for my kitchen. All of the stores said their pottery is lead free, but I think I will figure out a way to test them before adding any food items.
It takes a little time getting that musty smell out of the house upon my return, so today when I hit the grocery store (I was too lazy to go yesterday), I'll pick up something delicious to bake. Marie Calendars apple pies seem to work pretty good!! I did find one lone piece of flank steak in the freezer, which I defrosted and marinated for dinner. I even fired up the BBQ because I've been craving a little of the red, juicy goodness of cow. That apparently takes a little MORE time and some skills, of which I have none!! There's nothing like a big mouthful of burned fat from one end, followed by a big mouthful of uncooked fat from the other end to send me into a tailspin of coughing, followed by hiccups, requiring a gallon of water. UGH!!!
Someone sent this to me yesterday, which I think won't take much time at all. You can buy pre-stretched canvas squares at Michaels or Hobby Lobby, get some water soluble paint for your grandkids feeties and paint up a storm. Be sure to place their right foot on the left to get the correct perspective. How cute is this??? A great "mom and dad" present!! Just be sure to wash their feet afterwards BEFORE they go running across your carpet!! I think this project will make your grandkids squeal with delight!!
I have two meetings today ... investment man and tax man! It usually takes just a little time to get over the shock from unwanted information. Wish me luck!!!
